Selina Mayer - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Selina Mayer is a UK based photographer who creates eerily intimate black and white images of both the human body and form as well as landscape. They are fashioned in the style of the old photographic masters (think Avedon, Penn, Weston), focusing primarily on the figure; the curves, crevices, shadows, and marks of all humans. Her images capture the delicate balance between sexy and vulnerable. selinamayer.com

art blog - Jurij Treskow - empty kingdom
No se si hables español... but that's besides the point, Jurij Treskow was previously posted by Konahrtist in 2010. His fashion photography has been featured in places like Time, Elle and Harper's Bazaar but what really catches my eye are the darker more outside the box personal projects.  Treskow has a knack of capturing beauty through somber shadows.

Photographer Jacques Olivar originally hails from Casablanca, Morocco, and is well-known for his fashion photography work. Olivar's work spans numerous publications, such as Italian-, French-, USA-Marie Claire to French Glamour to British-, German-, Italian Uomo-Vogue to Vogue Homme International, and then some! However, it's his backstory that I really admire...mainly because it's been an equal passion of mine (inversed, however).

Ellen Rogers PHOTOGRAPHY

by

March 15, 2010

initiate (10)
Ellen Rogers is a photographer from the UK. Rogers shoots fashion and portrait photography, as well as her personal work, with her unique ghostly style and limited color palette that really makes the look of her haunting images. All of Rogers' work is analogue. She does not use any digital equipment or computer based manipulation. Most of her techniques and effects in her images come from artistic experimentation in the darkroom. Now, that's something I can definitely admire and respect as an artist. http://ellenrogers.co.uk
